Return of the 5 Deadly Venoms (1978)

Return of the 5 Deadly Venoms (1978, HGK) C-107m. SCOPE ** D: Chang Cheh. Starring Chen Kuan Tai, Philip Kwok, Lo Meng, Sun Chien, Chiang Sheng, Lu Feng. Interesting martial arts movie about a tyrant, who cripples three men, turns another one into an idiot. The four form a team and go into training for 3 years. Then they try to battle the tyrant and his son, who has hands of iron. Quite-well choreographed and directed eastern whose plot never really catches fire. Showdown includes mind-boggling acrobatics. The title is obviously wrong and the film is not a sequel to director Chang's classic FIVE DEADLY VENOMS, which he made the same year. Also known as CRIPPLED AVENGERS, CRIPPLED HEROS, and MORTAL COMBAT.
